LAS VEGAS, Honduras (AP) – Families of the more than 60 people packed into a tractor-trailer and abandoned in Texas have began to confirm their worst fears.

And a common narrative is taking shape from Honduras to Mexico: people seeking a better life.

Children hoping to earn enough to support their parents.

Young adults who had hoped college would lead to success left their country disillusioned.

A man already working in the U.S. decided to take a cousin on his return from a trip to his homeland.

More than 50 of those migrants left in the sweltering heat on the outskirts of San Antonio have died, while others remain hospitalized.
